ST. LOUIS (AP) -Commissioner Bud Selig said baseball is now doing a good job of policing itself when it comes to steroids.
``I am satisfied and I believe our fans are satisfied that we're doing everything and have done everything we can possibly do,'' Selig said Monday, speaking to more than 1,000 fans and media attending the St. Louis Baseball Writers dinner.
``I'm confident our testing program will be even better as we move forward.''
Selig was applauded as he walked to the podium, a week after he testified in front of Congress about the Mitchell Report.
``I can assure you, this Monday is a lot better time than what happened last Monday, and tomorrow will be a better day, too,'' he said.
Selig and union leader Donald Fehr both were praised for recent changes to the sport's drug policy by Congress last week. They were also chastised for not taking action sooner.
Selig credited the Cardinals, who drew 3.5 million fans and have sold out every game the first two seasons at new Busch Stadium, for being in the vanguard of the sports' growth. He predicted record league attendance next year of 80-81 million.
``We won't let you down,'' Selig told the audience. ``This sport will grow beyond anyone's expectation.''
Albert Pujols and closer Jason Isringhausen were named co-winners of the St. Louis baseball man of the year award at the dinner.
